Coins from the sunken Spanish galleon in Tobermory Bay have been stolen from a museum.



Coins from the sunken Spanish galleon in Tobermory Bay have been stolen from a museum.

Two "pieces of eight" have been taken from Mull Museum in Tobermory, along with a foot-long barnacle encrusted scabbard.

The Mull Museum started in the 1970's as a small temporary summer exhibition. In 1986 the Museum moved to its permanent home in Columba Buildings on Tobermory's Main Street and has been steadily developing its collection ever since

The coins, one from Spain and one from Bolivia, came from the San Juan De Sicilia which blew up in the bay in 1588.

The thief managed to open the locked display case which held the items, police said.#
